About the series: In April, we are offered a series of critique sessions with nationally renowned artists/instructors. These critique sessions were so successful that we are now offering another critique session for May.

Everyone is invited to watch the critiques, which we’ll broadcast online as Zoom webinars.
How to watch: This session will air via the online webinar platform Zoom. Zoom is available to download onto a computer, tablet or smartphone, or you can simply watch it through a web browser. Registrants will receive the log-in info, and we'll resend it in a reminder email the day before the Friday critique session.

About Gonzalo Ruiz Navarro: Gonzalo Ruiz Navarro is a native of Spain. His interest in painting began at an early age inspired by the rich heritage of Spain’s great masters such as Diego Velázquez in the 17th c. or Joaquín Sorolla in the 19th/20th c. He started his formal education pursuing a Master's in Fine Arts from the University of Valencia. This was followed by studies on Drawing and Painting at the University of Toledo, the University of Alcalá de Henares, the College of Doctors and Graduates in Madrid and the Taller del Prado Academy in Madrid. Later, Gonzalo had the privilege of working under the personal instruction of noted Spanish portraitist Carlos Moreu Spa and also studied figure painting at the Academy of Art and Contemporaneous Artists in Madrid, under the direction of the world-renown Chilean artist Guillermo Muñoz Vera.
Currently based in Washington, DC, Gonzalo works as a portrait artist commissioned by clients in both the USA and Europe. He has shown his portraits and other works in numerous exhibitions and won several awards. During his time in Spain, he exhibited in galleries throughout the country. Recently he had several solo exhibitions in Washington, DC and has participated in collective exhibitions in D.C. , Virginia and Maryland. He has been selected in juried exhibitions and has been awarded in Spain with the First Prize in the 23 APACC TYRIUS Art Competition 2007, the First Prize in the Painting Competition of Aranjuez 2001, and the Second Prize in the Painting Competition of Aranjuez 2000.
